This product is two spelling lists I generated by using common errors found in seventh grader’s writing. Each list can be found in its entirety in my store as a free download.
This is a pdf file, completely printable! This is a “flipped learning” approach to teaching spelling. I have the students do all the hard work at home. On Monday, I go through all the words and the kids "fill in the blanks". The students then have three nights of homework practicing the words: repetition drills, synonyms, antonyms, puzzles, etc. There is a QR Code activity for each list and a test paper. It is a 17 page PDF file ready to print and use. I have seen noticeable improvement in my students using this method to teach spelling.
A detailed description can be found below:
List #1 - This is a list of words that I generated based from my seventh grader's writing. I was using short responses which were literary based, I found these words to be more commonly misspelled. List is found as the "preview" for this product.
List #2 Homophones - This is a list of words that I also generated based from my seventh grader's writing. The list is primarily homophones that are often mixed up in writing. List is found as the "preview" for this product.
